Overview / Comments

Incredible opportunity to own this one-of - a kind , landmark Boutique Hotel Spa that has its own hot mineral water well. Of all the resorts here in the Palm Springs area- there is only one Living Waters Spa - an award winning European-style clothing optional spa located in the Palm Springs desert oasis of Desert Hot Springs in sunny Southern California. We've been featured by the New York Times, Washington Post, The Tennis Channel, Los Angeles Times, USA Today, Ellen Degeneres / and others. We think you'll enjoy us too!

The spa complex consists of 3 parcels:

* 10 room hotel/spa building (plus management apartment= 11 SUITES TOTAL) w/ a hot mineral water well & two mineral pools
* A vacant lot ( purchased for privacy) between home and spa building
* A fully paved lot ( used for parking ) just north of the spa building

Please see attached brochure for Ariel view and overview of this unique complex. This opportunity is priced realistically and based on the land/buildings value alone. There are 5 standard rooms, 3 rooms with kitchens, and 2 rooms with extra large kitchens, one with its own patio. Currently one room is used as a massage studio and other for the spa office but they could be converted back to standard rooms. All rooms are completely turnkey. All kitchen rooms have standard size appliances and utensils.Current owners have painstakingly upgraded and maintained the entire complex, buildings, and property - while maintaining its charm, warmth and character. Completely turn-key operation.

Also available and can be included in the purchase:


The 2 Buildings each have 3, 2-bedroom units for a total of 6 2-bedroom units. One unit in each building has 2 baths and there is an on site coin-operated laundry room. Each unit is on its own water, gas and electric meter. The Condos share a common courtyard. The condos are completely turnkey with all kitchen utensils, TVs, etc. etc.

The house is a lovely 3-bedroom 1,248 sq ft home. Its location in the complex makes it a PERFECT location for the owner/manager to live and keep oversight of the business while being separate from the business. The home is unfurnished.
